Firestone Tire & Service Centers

Posted on: 6/19/2010

Susan rocks! Great service and good tire prices.

I've always been a Costco guy for tires, but I have to say, I've bought two sets of tires (six total) from this store and have been really impressed. Susan (tire manager) actually acted like she wanted to earn our business - she gave us a good price upfront and then called proactively to let us know that the tires we were interested in had gone on sale a few days later. I know sometimes these places have a reputation for overselling, but we didn't get that impression from her at all. I'd recommend her to a friend, no question.

Ho Ho Noodles

Good food!

I agree with the other review. This place is great, and they're super fast with the food. The whole thing is actually quite a surprise, because the restaurant is much nicer than it appears from the outside. We typically just get take-out, but they just did a remodel and the inside seems really nice. Food is excellent, and they give large servings.

MBMT CORPORATION

Wow! An affordable, on-time moving company.

We contacted MBMT about moving a 7 piece living room set we purchased which included a very large (and heavy) TV armoire. To be honest, I was a little nervous hiring them sight unseen, but Willie (the Owner) was very professional on the phone. Plus, the other movers we contacted either a) didn't call back, b) had a $300 minimum, or c)sounded like they had to clear out the beer bottles from the bed of their pickup en route to the job. Willie, on the other hand, called back immediately and quoted us a VERY reasonable flat rate (which actually ended up being cheaper than renting a U-HAUL truck and schlepping the stuff ourselves). They called again the day of the move to confirm, and then they actually showed up ON TIME (if you've ever used movers, you realize what a shocker this one fact is). As if all that wasn't enough, when they showed up they brought a professional (i.e. real) moving truck with lift, moving blankets, and professional appliance dollies. The truck did not billow smoke nor did it coat my driveway with an oil slick (a lesson from my last moving experience). Finally, for the real shocker - they actually charged me, well, exactly what Willie quoted upfront. <thud> Who ARE these guys? No dobut they'll be thrown out of the movers union with this kind of service! :) So that was our experience - great movers, nice guys, and a job well done. My wife and I would hire them again in a heart beat.

Garrison's Broiler & Tap

Very slooooooowwwwww service

I really expected to be impressed. This place is part of the Metrotainment Cafes group, and their marketing is really top notch. I receive regular email offers, birthday cards with gift cards, etc. from them. So imagine my surprise when I used my shiny $20 gift card to purchase the WORST dining experience ever. The issue was not the food - it was actually very good. But the service was terrible. Literally, our waiter "forgot" about us once, took 15 minutes to get me a martini, brought our salads out with our meals, stopped by our table with another table's dirty dishes, and like someone else said just vanished into thin air when it came time for the check. Then when we finally got the check, it was wrong, so - you guess it - another 15 minutes waiting for a corrected version. Literally I think it took about 45 minutes to get our food (and salad at the same time) and then a good 30 minutes to get our correct check. It will be a while before I convince my wife to go back...maybe we'll try one of their other restaurants instead.
